  • Anyone happen to have beastmaker/hangboard that they dont use anymore and fancy getting rid of?

  • Anyone have a good suggestion for hotel room exercises/ exercise apparatus to try and train up a bit? I'm constantly staying away in hotels for work and I'd love something aimed at improving climbing carry-on to mix in with running and cycling.

  • I always use the door lintels as a hang board.
    wide grip, and pull ups.

  • You could get a portable hangboard?

  • For the first time in years, I did some outdoor belay climbing at the weekend and really enjoyed it. Keen start to get into some indoor climbing - what would I need other and shoes and chalk?

  • If you want to toprope you'll need a harness and belaying device but you may have those already

  • I'm clearing out my climbing stuff after not touching it for years and can't see myself getting back in to climbing. All from 2006-2009 but not heavily used, mainly indoor with occasional outdoor use. Inspection before buying strongly encouraged (SE8 or N7).

    Would be a good bundle for a beginner, is £45 for the lot a fair price? Let me know if I'm way off or you're interested in individual items.

    Black Diamond Momentum AL Slate harness size small (I'm a 30" waist)
    Black Diamond ATC XP belay device (older style without cutouts, missing the rubber side stickers)
    Petzl William screwgate
    x1 DMM Sentinel screwgate
    x2 DMM screwgates, not sure which model
    Boreal Joker shoes, UK 8.5. Worn but life left in them
    Chalk bag with a waist strap and refillable ball + a bag of chalk

  • Chatted to a fella riding a red Specialized track bike heading to the castle yesterday (I was the guy on the Brompton) - thought he might be on here... up for a climb some time!

  • I've got a pair of Scarpa Instinct VS size 39 for sale. They have a tiny tear in material by the pull tab on the left shoe - shown in the first picture. Simply too small for me, literally worn for about 10 mins. Anyone interested? £60 posted seems reasonable as cheapest online price I can see is around £110.

  • Any recommendations for a good book to get my bouldering mad friend?

  • 9 out of 10 climbers make the same mistakes

  • Well received, thank you!

  • Let’s just hope he’s not the 1 in 10 😉

  • Does anyone have any recommendations of a mat that won’t break the bank? Bouldering inside looks out for a while so I need to step up and give outdoors a go!

  • Alp kit ones are pretty good - but come in varying degrees of comfort if I recall correctly.

  • You pay for what you get, but to echo above, Alpkit seem to be the popular budget option.

  • I got one of these which I can recommend.

  • Lovely, cheers guys!

  • The newish Black Diamond Impact is a really good value starter pad. Drop Zone is a lil bit bigger for just a lil more money.
